I had a 30 rounder. Never had a problem with it. It just sucks you can't remove it without taking the damn trigger group out. Heres an idea, buy an AK... ;-)

I'm pretty sure its illegal to change a C&R gun no matter what state you are in unless you play the "10 or less" game.

If you ever need advice about what can and can't be done to an SKS, check out SKSboards.com

There's a lot of good advice floating around there/

I took my fixed mag out but I had to sand the inside of the stock some so the 30rnd magazine would fit. I have a Chinese SKS which seem to be the most compatible with the detachable mags. I've found out though that if I put an even number of rounds in the mag then it won't feed correctly.

What if you load an odd number of rounds and then fire one shot?

I've heard that you can do something to an SKS to convert it around so it will accept AK mags, but what I know about SKS's and tinkerin' with them you could put in a shot glass and still have plenty of room for tequila.

Buy an SKS- M or SKS-D. They use AK mags that are reliable. Drums too I do believe.
